    Default JUST ADDED A NEW WATCH .... and it is QUARTZ!@!

    JUST ADDED A NEW WATCH .... and it is QUARTZ!@!

    I have posted before about wanting 4 good watches.... I already own a Breitling Navitimer, Omega Speedmaster and Rolex Two Tone DateJust with diamond dial.

    ANYHOW.... I was seriously thinking of adding a President or TT Sub or Explorer II ....

    BUT I ADDED A QUARTZ WATCH INSTEAD....

    This is partially because I got a super deal on said watch....

    A few other reasons are as follows:-
    1) My inheritance that was coming.... HAS NOT ARRIVED YET! Very slack executor (not really wanting to push the matter with a family member.... so I will wait)
    2) The Australian dollar is at record lows.... last year it was almost parity with the US $..... but since the GFC it is in the $0.62 - $0.67 range. This makes any US $ based purchase very expensive..... like 40% more expensive than before.....
    3) I wanted to own 4 different brands... not having 2 of the same brand in my small 4 piece collection....
    4) I like the idea of having the 3 different movement types covered.... Manual wind (Omega Speedie), Auto (Breitling & Rolex) and Quartz (Cartier)
    5) I always like the moonphase feature.

    The watch I chose is a CARTIER TWO TONE LARGE SIZE MENS SANTOS WITH MOONPHASE.
    I paid AUS$2500- for the watch (about US$1605-)
    Admittedly that is because quartz is very soft at the moment....

    BUT - Cartier has never been a movement watch (like a Patek is bought for the beauty of the machine).... a Cartier is bought for the stunning outside design excellence.....

    AT HOME WITH THE OTHERS!

    Lovely collection Archie, but that Rolex is awful, tell you what- I'll PM my address to you and you can send the Rolex to me and I'll hide it for you. I'm nice that way.

    I'm just kidding you, I love love love your watch collection!
